From the Board
Last year The Colonial Lawyer attempted to place
greater emphasis on alumni of the law school. It
was our feeling that the professional activities and
accomplishments of alumni were of interest to stu-
dents and faculty as well as other alumni. The re-
sponses received from individual alumni have been
pleasing and, in some cases, flattering to the edi-
torial staff.
As the emphasis on alumni coverage increased,
so did questions concerning the propriety of serving
an alumni audience with a magazine financed en-
tirely by student funds. This year the College Board
of Student Affairs, feeling that this publication should
be financed partly from other sources, reduced The
Colonial Lawyer budget by approximately thirty-five
per cent. When this budget cut was made, the Edi-
torial Board asked the Student Bar Association's Di-
rector of Alumni Relations to explore the possibility
of obtaining additional financing from the law school
alumni organization. The Director later reported that
the alumni organization, as a matter of policy, would
not provide financial support for any student publi-
This financial situation has caused the Editorial
Board to reconsider the role of The Colonial Lawyer

in the law school community. Because this publica-
tion is financed solely by student funds and also be-
cause the alumni organization publishes its own news-
letter, we concluded that it was improper to provide
alumni coverage at the students' sole expense. We
also concluded that our alumni coverage might at
times duplicate material appearing in the alumni or-
ganization's newsletter. Consequently, this issue will
be the last one mailed to alumni. We hope that the
alumni organization will pass on to the students and
faculty of the law school newsworthy items of alumni
achievements and activities.
This issue of The Colonial Lawyer offers several
articles which will be of interest to both the present
law school community and alumni alike. An article by
third-year law student Edward Flippen examines the
effect of local zoning ordinances upon mobile-home
ownership. Assistant Professor Joseph A. Miri of the
Department of Government, College of William and
Mary examines the proposed reorganization of Vir-
ginia's environmental agencies. Several present and
former Marshall-Wythe law students were instru-
mental in the drafting of this legislation. Finally, The
Colonial Lawyer presents an article by Law Professor
William F. Swindler in which he discusses the pro-
posed organization and activities of the National Cen-
ter for State Courts which is to be located in Wil-
